From Tulsa World:
It’s kind of exciting as Tulsa gets its 21st-century library,” said Tulsa City-County Library CEO Gary Shaffer.
The library closed in the fall for a two-year, $48 million renovation project that will replace the building’s mechanical system, add a parking garage and open a new entrance on Fifth Street, among other things.
A few delays have pushed the projected completion to the spring of 2016.
The five-floor library will be divided into “zones” of activities, with the most active floor on the ground level where visitors will enter. Glass-enclosed study rooms will line the balcony.

Shaffer said traffic at Central is expected to double after its reopening.
